Ithaca College has re-evaluated its freshman orientation process in an attempt to make the experience more helpful for incoming students.
This will hopefully set a tone of enthusiasm and encourage involvement for the rest of the academic year — and for the rest of the new students’ time at the college.
Ithaca College formally welcomed the Class of 2018 through the college’s Convocation ceremony on the morning of Aug. 25 in the Glazer Arena of the Athletics and Events Center.
The class of 2017 officially began their time at Ithaca College on Monday with the 2013 Convocation. Faculty, alumni and students gathered in the Glazer Arena to welcome the incoming students.
Ithaca College has seen a 13 percent increase in freshmen applications for Fall 2013, compared to last year. The 15,641 applications mark the the largest applicant pool in the college’s history.
